Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport

Herve Meets the England Rugby Team

Foundation beneficiary Herve Irakunda met up with the England Rugby team at their team hotel in Paris ahead of their World Cup Warm up Game in the Stade De France.  Foundation Trustee and England Forwards Coach Graham Rowntree organised the visit and Herve spent time with many of the England players and coaching staff including Head Coach Stuart Lancaster and Captain Chris Robshaw.  Herve was hit by a car in South Africa playing touch rugby almost 5 years ago leaving him paralysed from the shoulders down and breathing via the aid of a ventilator and has been supported by the Foundation since his accident. Herve said “ It was a great evening, the players were good fun and Im looking forward to watching them in the World Cup and I'll be wearing the top Graham Rowntree gave me!”
